Shustoke Reservoir lies two miles east of Coleshill on the B4114 Coleshill to Furnace End Road, south of the River Bourne. At 1.5km west to east, the main pool is only 400m at its widest point. The River Bourne feeds the smaller eastern pool (8 acres), the water is then transferred to the main reservoir (92 acres). Disturbance at weekends can be a problem.

Received a text message from the good Captain that he observed a juvenile Lesser Spotted Woodpecker with a roving Tit flock near the Bat House, one assumed that he had a “Robin” as well – “Holy Tit Flock”.
